What does AIC mean?

The AIC rating specifies the maximum available fault current that an overcurrent protection device will safely clear when a fault is applied to the overcurrent protection device's load side. The AIC rating is only applicable to overcurrent protection devices. It is irrelevant to standard relay, and standard relays do not have an AIC rating.
